Error-proof Operations with Proactive Quality Control

Set restrictions to improve quality and traceability.

Set up guardrails to prevent quality issues from occurring - for example, a certain ingredient can’t be used in a finished good because of an allergen-free claim. And since all specs are linked and rolled up, you’ll ensure any formula containing that allergen won’t be used either. This also vastly improves traceability so that if a product quality issue arises, as you can quickly identify everywhere that spec is being used.

Track & Take Action on Customer Complaints

Intervene on issues before they escalate.

Today, most quality professionals log COA’s, SCARs, complaints, or other actions in a stand-alone quality management system (QMS). Specright enables you to quickly initiate any of these records and tie them to the corresponding specification, sub-assembly, or finished good to pinpoint exactly what went wrong, correct this issue, and prevent it from reoccurring. The visibility and traceability of issues helps teams beyond quality, such as procurement, packaging, and product development.

Manage Quality, Regulatory Requirements, and Compliance Documentation

Centralize all critical quality standards for quick reference and reporting.

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), certificates of analysis (COAs), ISO certs, QA testing protocols and procedures, facility audits - these are all documents you need available at your fingertips. Specright keeps track of suppliers and store and manage all relevant documentation tied to the specification level - and easily roll it up to products, resulting in faster time-to-action when an issue is discovered.

Track Quality at a Glance with Reports & Dashboards

Keep a pulse on quality across your supply chain.

Because quality issues are tied to specifications and suppliers, there are endless ways to report on quality. View real-time or historical trends by location, supplier, or custom preferences. Report on any outstanding action item due from a supplier such as testing, quality checks, and samplings.

Supplier Collaboration & Document Management

Improve accountability and supplier relationships.

When a specification is updated, suppliers linked to that spec are automatically notified via alerts, emails, and in-platform notifications. Specright also makes it easy to manage documents such as policies, audits, insurance docs, and SOPs. Specright's Supplier Documents feature allows users to take action on static documents to add expiration dates, ensuring files are attached, and triggering automatic certification renewals.

Reduce Risk with Quality Automation & Audits

Automate data flow across your supply base.

Supply chain risk is very real and comes in different forms: food safety, mislabeling, the list goes on. With Specright, quality professionals can automate data streams from suppliers and auto-score critical data points such as COAs against acceptable baselines, quickly flagging issues as soon as they occur.

ISO 9000 and Quality Management Standards

Although there are many standards related to quality management systems, ISO 9000 is one of the most important for companies to pay attention to. ISO 9000 is a series of international quality management standards that provide guidance on how to implement quality management systems within an organization.

These standards are continuously updated as environments adapt and concerns shift, with the goal of outlining frameworks for companies looking to implement quality management systems. 

One of the key components of these standards includes Corrective and Preventive Actions or CAPA. CAPA is a process that helps organizations identify and correct problems that occur in their processes, products, or services and helps businesses take preventative measures to avoid similar issues in the future. Companies looking to optimize their quality management systems should aim to become familiar with CAPA practices, tools, and training so that they can attack problems before they even occur.    

Regardless of an organization's size or type ISO 9000 systems can be used to improve the quality of products and services and in return enhance customer satisfaction, increasing company efficiency and profitability.
